5/15/2010

The Texas Rangers recalled RHPs Guillermo Moscoso and Pedro Strop from Oklahoma City on Saturday and optioned outfielder Craig Gentry and RHP Doug Mathis to the Triple-A affiliate.

Mathis (1-1) had a tough outing Friday in relief of starter Rich Harden, allowing eight runs in 1 1/3 innings in a 16-10 loss at Toronto. Gentry was recalled from Oklahoma City on April 27 and appeared in nine games. He made four starts at center field and batted .214.

In seven stars at Oklahoma City, Moscoso went 2-2 with a 2.95 ERA while striking out 33 and walking 16. He made his major league debut last season with Texas, posting a 3.21 ERA in 10 reliefe appearances.

Strop, a converted infielder, went 0-1 in Oklahoma City with a 2.63 ERA. He recorded four saves over 13 relief appearances.
